This report first describes the prevalence of mental disorders among 5- to 16-year olds in 2004 and notes any changes since the previous survey in 1999. It then provides profiles of children in each of the main disorder categories (emotional, conduct, hyperkinetic and autistic spectrum disorders) and , where the sample size permits, profiles subgroups within these categories. The final chapters examine the characteristics of children with multiple disorders and present a selection of analyses for Scotland. Causal relationships should not be assumed for any of the results presented in this report.
